Product Description

Yong Pin Hao 2003 "Man Zhuan Mountain Wild Arbor" Stone-Pressed Pu-erh Tea is from Man Zhuan Mountain, a neighbor mountain to Yi Wu in the county of Mengla (Xishuangbanna Prefecture). Man Zhuan teas, though somewhat similiar to Yi Wu, are different in both appearance and taste. Man Zhuan teas have a lighter color and more prominent fat white shoots. The tea itself has a subtle flowery aromatic quality. As with other Yong Pin Hao premium teas, this cake is entirely first flush of Spring 2003 (end of March), the kill-green process (sha qing) was done in woks (small batch), and the leaves were then stone-pressed with a heavy stone press. After compression, the tea was dried naturally without baking to preserve its natural state.

Yong Pin Hao 2003 "Man Zhuan Mountain Wild Arbor" Stone-Pressed Pu-erh Tea is one of Yong Pin Hao's first productions of Man Zhuan Mountain tea. The leaves are solid and heavy, mostly whole leaf/bud sets. The aroma is incredibly complex and aromatic. The flavor is thick and satisfying with so many different levels to it and a sweet finish. This is a bit more bitter than the 2003 Yong Pin Hao Yi Wu, but every bit as satisfying. A moderately pricey cake, but if you figure 7 grams per session (using 100ml pot or gaiwan), you could get 57 sessions out of this cake. Well worth it for lovers of high quality aged Man Zhuan.

Net Weight: 400 grams per cake (also available in 25g size)

Ingredients: Man Zhuan Mountain (Mengla) sun-dried Yunnan Large Leaf varietal tea

Produced by: Yong Pin Hao Tea Factory
